Python Rock and Pat’s Bluff, O’Reillys. This is an easy half-day walk with beautiful views. Leaving Spring Gully Stays at 8am. Contact Heather.  PS: in case you’re worried about it, the road to O’Reillys is not too bad. There are still some delays but nothing like there were a few months ago.

Illinbah Valley explore -  Leaving Spring Gully Stays at 7.30a.m for an
off track exploration of the picturesque Illinbah Valley. The Illinbah track is closed, a victim of Ex Tropical Cyclone Debbie, so we will have an explore. We will then retrace our steps along the track and head uphill towards two old lookouts, Bimboolba and Cooginbano. After some more exploring at the top we’ll hopefully make our way down the steep footpad back to the cars. We haven’t been in this area for some years, so we have no idea of the condition of the flora up to the lookouts.  So come prepared in full armour (covered legs and arms) gaiters and gloves plus a spirit of adventure.  Usual day walk requirements. Please contact Hilary or Tracy.

Palm Falls-Walk/Wade - Meet at Canungra 0730 - We set off down the track to the Coomera River at about 8:30AM from the info centre, Binna Burra. The going is all downhill.  When we get to the river, we assess the water level before heading upstream to the side branch leading to Palm Falls.  We may be forced to wade in the river due to thick growth of vegetation on the banks.  We may have to negotiate logs, boulders and pools of water as we travel up and back along the river.  There are nice rock slabs to stop for morning tea and lunch.  Not long after a steep-ish climb up a side creek we arrive at the base of Palm Falls.  It is rainforest - so there are vines and prickly bits besides the leader.  What goes down must go back up to balance the energy equation.  Bring food, expect to get wet.  Dry clothes for the car journey home.  All of this fun is subject to the weather!
